Hi all, my first post, so apologies if I'm not correctly following protocol. I'm currently semi-stranded in the Memphis area due to my job being shut down in NY, and I was hoping you guys could point me towards where I can find some beef ribs (Not short ribs, the "Dino" rack, or "plate ribs") in the Memphis region. They're fairly prevalent in my area in western NY, but here in pork country, Tennessee, they seem to be a bit of a rarity. My esteemed brother in law is a stellar brother in smoke, and I promised to share with him the joys of some delicious beef ribs. Can anybody point me towards a purveyor in the area? Thank y'all so much.

Plate and Chuck ribs are both Short ribs cuts.

Can't help ya with finding them in Memphis other than to tell you to start hitting meat counters looking for short ribs cut in any form, and then asking the clerk if he has the whole uncut racks still in the cryovac bag.
They come two racks per bag and expect to pay $6.-8. per lb.
Unfortunately you'll find them to be Chuck shorts ribs 80%+ of the time.
Finding Plates is a real challenge unless you special order them thru a store or online.

Dude I live in Southaven, MS (just across the border) and work in Memphis. I can totally understand the misery of being stranded in memphis. Are you looking to buy to cook or eat? If your looking for a place to eat try Neeleys Interstate BBQ.

Thank you all for the replies; Ive checked some local butchers and the Germantown costco with no luck; but Ill check out the warehouse also. And JLeonard-I had been hoping to find some to cook but Ill definitely put Neelys on my radar, thanks for the recommendation!
